The tool carrier frame, which will be mounted on the front of a new Gen 3 Fendt, can accommodate a variety of mechanical weeding tools from renowned manufacturers such as Braun and Clemens.
The Braun Vine Trunk Cleaner and Clemens MultiClean heads offer growers an environmentally friendly, chemical-free, way to effectively bud rub and control weeds in the under-trunk area without interfering with the soil structure. Handy for the end of winter and early spring season, these strimmer-like heads can also clear prunings in preparation for mulching.
Each tool carrier frame is custom-built to the exact specifications of the growers, who can choose the desired width, whether it is hydraulically or manually adjustable, and single- or double-sided.
Claire Seymour, director at NP Seymour, commented: “Founded in 1974 by my father, Nick Seymour, our family-run business has grown and evolved tremendously over the last five decades and today we’re extremely proud to be the go-to specialist fruit and vine machinery dealership for UK growers.
One thing that’s remained the same over the years is our commitment to providing growers with the very best tractor and machinery solutions. As well as partnering with leading suppliers, such as Fendt, we also design and manufacture bespoke pieces of equipment when we feel there is something missing in the market. Many growers will recognise our custom-built table-top strawberry sprayers and we’re now excited to showcase our latest invention, the front-mounted mechanical weeding tool carrier, at Farm Expo.”
The NP Seymour team looks forward to seeing you on their stand at Farm Expo on 6 March 2024.
